Map of the original Six Flags Over Texas amusement park (representing the six ruling flags of Texas – Spain, Mexico, France, Texas, Confederacy and the United States) published when average park attendance was 15,000/day and admission cost $7.50.
Six Flags opened in 1961 and was the brainchild of Angus Wynne, who was inspired to finance the park after the successful opening of Disneyland in 1955. Cyrus Cosmo, the mascot created for the park, is seen riding a lightning bolt and dancing a jig. Specific areas of the park are dedicated to each nation, and a text box declares that Six Flags “is what you wish the world could be.”
Condition: The map is in B+ condition, with minor soiling and wear along the fold lines.
